Clinton launches TV ad in Montana

Clinton campaigned in Puerto Rico over the weekend.'

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton is hitting the television airwaves in Montana, five days before that state holds one of the primary season's last two contests.

The 30-second ad, called "Only One," is a largely positive spot that promotes the New York senator's plan to tackle the special interests in Washington.

"She's the only one in this campaign who voted against the Bush energy bill against six billion dollars to the oil companies, the only one taking on the insurance companies to guarantee health coverage for every American and she's the one who'll end fifty five billion dollars in giveaways to corporate special interests and cut taxes for the middle class instead," the ad's narrator states.

The American Leadership Project, a pro-Clinton independent group also launched an ad in the state earlier this week.

Montana and South Dakota hold the final two Democratic primaries next Tuesday. Barack Obama is widely viewed to have an advantage in both states.

    "Only One" – that's all it takes to start the ball rolling of Dividing this country, for selfish gains!
    Why doesn't she talk about the deception, lawsuits,( breaking with election fund raising), lying about Mi., Fla., ballots, race card, religion debates, dividing rural and city areas (as if they both don't understand the falled economy, illegal wars, no health care, etc., )feminist sex card.
    Her husband got the nominee in April no June?
    Lies and Deception are the days of the past!

    The voices of the American People want a real change, not a Bush-Clinton, lying, deceitful, female/acting like a GOOD OLD BOY!

    Nancy Pelosi will have to get used to being the second strongest woman in power- in other words she shouldn't pretend that she is impartial!

    "So Obama rubber stamped Bush's energy bill, huh. How do you y'all feel about paying $5/gallon for gas? Yeah, that's change we can all believe in"

    My suspician is that you did not bother to READ this bill before you wrote it, if you did you would see that there were several GOOD policies that were a part of the bill that more than offset the bad but then again you are hillary supporters and not long on education just rhetoric.
    Moronic Clintonistas think (if possible) for ONCE in your life before you talk it really is important to do so

  7. What if?

    It's time House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, you have been more then fair.

    Clinton had the money, name, backing and experience (as most of you keep saying), But to be honest, her campaign was filled with lies, negative attacks, arrogance and self centered ways (my, my, my, my, my). She lose this year by her own doing, no one is to blame unless you blame her and her camp. I think it was wrong how she played a bully game toward the DNC leaders, super delegates and delegates these last few weeks.

    Clinton used her supporters after she saw she was losing to Obama, and how she regret taking this presidental nominee as if it was going to be handit to her. I guess Clinton should stop telling voter “IN MY WHITE HOUSE“ what she promise to do. She didn't win,

    Obama supporters, please let's be kind Obama would want it that way. OBAMA 08

    Running ads in Montana? Do the stations playing those ads have a clue that they won't get paid? Hillary's campaign is dead broke.

    Barak Hussein Obama no experience, no record of accomplishement and still learning how the senate works. Now wants to be President, this is crazy.

    Can you imagine a person joining the military and two years later wants to be the Chairman Of The Joint Chief Of Staff. This is crazy.

    Can you imagine a person joining Boeing Corp with no experience and two years later wants to be the CEO. This is crazy.

    Can you imagine, a person joining a corpaoration with no experience and two years later wants to be the CEO. This is crazy.

    Obama maybe smart but to be President now? It is too early. This is crazy.

    "Special Interests" and Hillary Clinton have bonded over many years and that is not about to change. We need real change, and I firmly believe that Barack Obama can promise and deliver on that which includes distancing himself from special interest groups that will benefit the big majority of our American citizens.

  17. David Goldman for OBAMA

    Yes, let us go back, count EACH and every voter in the caucaus states and then use the "popular" votes. Even with this CHANGE in rules, to fit Hillary and her supporters, Hillary will not win.

    Okay, what about letting the Republicans wage war on both Obama and Hillary. Whoever is less bloodied by the Republicans will get the nomination. Even with this change in the rules to fit Hillary, she will not win.

    Please indulge, just one more time: What about if we let Obama and Hillary spend an night in the White House, get someone to place a 3:00am call, and see who gets to the phone FIRST! Even here, I beleive Hillary will be beaten to the phone.

    Please just one more Rule change: What if we start this democratic process all over again, scrap every vote, and let the Republicans monitor the voting process?

    ALL THE OBAMA PEOPLE WANT THEIR BOY TO WIN AND KEEP CALLING FOR HILLARY TO STEP DOWN, WHY DOSEN'T OBAMA STEP DOWN. THE OBAMANITES ARE STUPID. THEY SHOULD CHECK THE FACTS, HILLARY IS AHEAD IN THE POPULAR VOTE, ALSO HER SUPPORTERS WANT HER TO WIN. THE OBAMA PEOPLE ARE NOT ALL THE PEOPLE OUT THERE. THERE ARE MORE FOR HILLARY THAN THERE ARE FOR OBAMA. ALSO THE OBAMANITES ARE MEAN HEARTED, DISRUPTIVE, AND PLAIN NASTY.

    I almost fell off my chair at the sight of HRC in a pantsuit standing in a field with a very "genuine" looking cowboy.. attempting to look concerned.

    This lady is laughable at best.. at worst and most likely one of the most destructive presences to any shred of decency that US politics have remaining..

    Which at this point isn't much.

    Yes we can! Btwy, this phrase does not belong to the Obama side . It belongs to Cesar Chavez, a man who fough for a better future for America and his family is also supporting Clinton.

    Hillary – President of the United States of America

  24. What if?

    I wanted to be the first to say to the voters who claim they were not going to support Obama, even after months of listening to Hillary lie about her and her supporters would rally behind our nominee. Oh that’s right she only ENCOURAGE you to lobby, but didn't ENCOURAGE you to stick to her word, that she and her supporters would rally behind the democratic nominee 100%.

    The only type of attitude displayed on this board from Hillary and her supporters proves she has cause division within the demo crated party?

  25. HILLARY HAS THE POPULAR VOTE!!!!!!

    YES OBAMA VOTED FOR THE BUSH ENERGY BILL!

    IF PEOPLE DID THEIR HOMEWORK,
    INSTEAD OF JUDGING THIS RACE LIKE AMERICAN IDOL,
    THEY WOULD SEE THAT HILLARY ALWAYS HAS A DETAILED PLAN AND CAN BACK IT UP WITH EXPERIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE!

    CONGRATS ON THE DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD IN PUERTO RICO HILLARY!!!!
